Is Bale’s time up at White Hart Lane?

For the past couple of seasons, he’s been at the heart of everything that Tottenham have done right, and his impressive goal haul this campaign has helped him to win the coveted PFA Player of the Year award. It’s safe to say that without Gareth Bale, Tottenham can look pretty ordinary, but as his stock rises, does the likelihood of his departure?.

Spurs are currently in a hotly-contested race to qualify for next season’s Champions League along with London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea and with Bale returning from injury, it seems that Andre Villas-Boas’s side have got their mojo back in time. However, Bale might be tempted to leave if Spurs finish outside the top four, and will have no shortage of takers.

One possible destination in the summer is Real Madrid. Although they have the likes of Mesut Ozil and Angel di Maria to provide creativity in the middle of the park, another superstar to assist Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema up front could help them boost their hopes of winning silverware on all fronts next season.

Should he leave Tottenham, Bale won’t be cheap. Because of his standing in the game and his performances for club and country, it’s likely he could cost at least £50m. Real, Barcelona and the two Manchester clubs are probably the only teams on the planet who could afford to sign him, and any move will probably see him move to Spain.

After winning the PFA Player of the year award, there’s every chance that his price tag will increase further.

“We think Bale’s future is hanging in the balance so we’ll let punters decide. The market does indicate he’ll add to his personal haul with his current club however.” said Alex Donohue from Ladbrokes after Bale’s double award on Sunday evening.

After the winning both awards, Bale is now 8/1 to end his career at White Hart Lane whilst he is 8/11 to lift silverware during his time at Spurs. Ending his career at Tottenham would be a huge surprise to many football fans and it is looking more and more likely that he’ll be playing for a different team next season.
